Editor, The Sole Adventurer, Lagos and Amsterdam
Having studied English language and literature at Lagos State University, Bukola Oyebode worked for a spell at a commercial art gallery in the Nigerian capital before setting up The Sole Adventurer in 2015. Initially a blog about contemporary Nigerian art, the publication became a fully fledged magazine in 2018. Published online and in special print editions, it now covers art from across Africa and the diaspora.
Oyebode’s other projects include the Art Forum Africa, held in 2015 and 2016, and the TSA Art Writing Masterclass. In 2017, she guest-edited a special issue of Intense Art Magazine about women artists from Nigeria. She regularly speaks about digital publishing and the position of women in the arts, most recently on a panel at the first Radical Solidarity Summit organised online by Zeitz MOCAA in September 2020.
